Plagued by nightmares, Annette yearns to find her anonymous rescuer — the man who saved her life from a near deadly assault. Deep inside she is starving for companionship and a mutually respectful relationship. When Mr. Peter Adsley, an abolitionist pastor dealing with his own emotional baggage, agrees to a clandestine meeting, the event appears providential. But self-doubt, deception, and the schemes of a mutual enemy threaten to keep the pair apart. A phantom adversary will stop at nothing to win Annette’s dowry for himself, even if it means killing Peter.

Praise for the Book

"Not only is this a delightful regency romance but it is also suspense filled mystery of the very best kind." - Amazon Review

"The author did a great job, maybe too great a job, describing the slave scenes. Spine tingling and suspenseful. I was biting my nails throughout much of this book." - Amazon Review

Miss Mary Hope Adsley always considered herself to be the sensible one. But now, her sensibilities are unraveling around a man she thought she knew. After he attempted to marry her best friend—for money, no less—authorities charge Sir Steven Likebridge with masquerading as a gentleman and abduction. With his execution days away, Mary Hope desperately seeks to learn the truth about the man she loves.

Will the truth turn out to be worse than his lies?

Praise for the Book

"I thoroughly enjoyed this clean, historical fiction. . . enjoyed most that it is not the usual presentation of a regency novel." - Amazon Review

"A lovely story that shows how despicable each of us can be and yet God not only still loves us, but He was willing to die for us." - Amazon Review

Never Past Hope Excerpt:

Opening Scene (continued)

Mary Hope’s vision blurred as she slipped into her room. The metallic click of the bolt locking was her signal. Finally, she dropped her pretense, and all her gentle words and kind smiles, those nods and whispered reassurances—lies, every one of them—fell away. She staggered to the wing-backed chair by the fire, collapsing and pulling its woolen coverlet down around her shoulders, then huddling against its cushioned corner.

Sputtering, she tried to control the ache of her shattered heart, but she could not. The saintly lady of means, Miss Mary Hope Adsley, with all her self-assurance and poise, felt as if she was drowning, and she could not imagine how things could improve by morning.

He had so thoroughly deceived them—her—that she could hardly think, let alone remain hopeful. Worse still, the wretched situation might be her fault entirely. Had she been more forthright and honest about her longstanding vow, however rash it was when she made it, could she have prevented this unspeakable business?

How does one begin to describe such a scandal or the anguish tearing at her soul like a butcher’s knife loosening flesh?

“Saints above! Richard? And Father too?” Mary Hope groaned, suddenly realizing the magistrates would, in all likelihood, hold him—this man whom she thought she knew so well—liable for both her older brother’s and her father’s deaths.

“But he is not to blame!” A fresh torrent flooded her cheeks. Had she explained everything to her father when she first met Mr. Steven Likebridge—yes, the so called blackguard and criminal of the day—the family’s situation would have been exceedingly different. Father and Richard would be alive. Peter would still be pastoring his flock at St. John’s in Buxton.

Mary Hope buried her face in the coverlet. She could not bring herself to ponder what she would have been doing today had she revealed her true feelings.

About the Author

I love losing myself somewhere in time with Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice or a number of other classics like Jane Eyre and Redeeming Love. I cry over most things Nicholas Sparks (because they usually end sadly) and Amazing Grace, both the movie and the hymn, because they lead to the Ultimate happily ever after.
